Accelerating Innovation with
Additive Manufacturing


MULTI FUNCTIONAL OPTIMISATION SOFTWARE WITH MULTI PROPERTY CAPABILITIES ENABLED BY A MULTI PHYSICS APPROACH

For the variable multi parameter optimisation, simulation & production file generation of single- and multi-material AM parts.

Our Mission


Additive Flow develops and supports implementation of novel, intelligent and multi-functional digital solutions that allow designers and engineers to unlock the next level of performance from additive manufacturing and industrial 3D printing technologies.

We work in partnership with our clients to implement our unique modular solutions into their existing production and/or product development workflows to streamline the digital process chain, remove time-consuming complexities and provide optimal — and tangible — results.

We currently work on a consultancy project basis with our clients to maximise the benefits of FormFlow and realise the benefits across their individual workflows. We will be launching the FormFlow software on general release later in 2020.

Additive Flow's breakthrough technology has massive potential to help us deliver on our vision to enable people to move as they wish - saving us development costs and time, while suggesting practical designs at the limit of what is possible.

Additive Manufacturing will be a key contributor towards a sustainable world, our software is accelerating that.

Headline Statements


  • FormFlow puts the right material, with the right properties, in the right place.
  • FormFlow optimises part geometry and material properties simultaneously.
  • FormFlow allows users to simultaneously view productivity, cost & performance of different materials, multiple materials and different geometry optimisations.
  • FormFlow quickly and efficiently produces optimised production files according to multiple user-defined parameters.
  • Additive Flow is AM technology neutral and can work with any OEM or SME to intelligently streamline their AM workflow and produce improved AM parts.

Our Simple Workflow


Additive Flow’s software solutions streamline the inherent complexity of the digital workflow for additive manufacturing, with the capability to apply multiple user-defined parameters for simultaneous geometry and material optimisation. The dedicated algorithms within FormFlow do all of the complex work, and produce comprehensive and tangible results that deliver optimally performing parts cost effectively, sustainably and rapidly.

Part of the in-built intelligence within FormFlow is that its capabilities are not all or nothing. Users are able to apply as many or as few of the optimisation parameters as required for their specific application/s.


1

Input

Users upload their 3D CAD model and define their functional requirements through our intuitive user-interface
2

Automate

In the background our smart algorithms will generate different solutions, these are then evaluated and optimised
3

Solve

These are cross-checked against available machine resources and adjusted accordingly so that designs are always production ready.

4

Export

The user can export a production ready file or a report containing all data for offline analysis.


Advanced Capabilities


Whether working with polymers, metals, composites or ceramics, FormFlow’s specialist solvers account for the unique properties in AM materials and can be tailored to work with single- or multi material designs. This is achieved with a multi-property approach that can allocate properties based on required functionality. Furthermore, this enables discrete or functional gradient allocations through simultaneous material and geometrical optimisation. Additive Flow is the first company to commercially offer these simultaneous capabilities to maximise performance and manufacturability for additive manufacturing.
